My wife and I were thrilled by Bob’s work. He listens to what you are looking for and understands what is expected. He has a wonderful eye and an even better personality. Bob ensured that we will have beautiful memories of our wedding.

The Ockens were amazing. They captured our day beautifully with elegant and artistic photos. We were happy to see moments we didn’t remember from our whirlwind day.

Chris was fantastic to work with: casual, accommodating, and a helpful supporter during the wedding day when my family was too busy to calm me down! If my husband and I had to plan our wedding all over again, we’d make sure Chris was involved.

Chris Ocken did a fantastic job capturing the essence of our day! My husband and I appreciated the amazing quality of his work, as well as his fun, easy-going personality. Chris caught all of the unique moments and really told the story of our special day through pictures. We have already recommended the Ockens to a number of our friends and
will continue to do so for years to come!

Jennifer was wonderful. She was not pushy but helped the flow of the wedding. We did not have a wedding planner or a bridezilla so we needed someone to help. She put corsages on people and helped bustle the bride, meanwhile taking hauntingly beautiful B/W and vibrant colors of dancing and toasts. She was a pleasure to work with.

Chris and Jennifer Ocken were fantastic. Their pictures were beautiful, they were so incredibly friendly and willing to meet and discuss our interests in what we wanted, and the results were perfect. They made our picture-taking as painless as possible, actually making it quite fun and were SO prepared for every moment that our pictures were better than we could have hoped. We recommend Ocken Photography with utmost certainty.

Jennifer made the day fun, which calmed many nerves (including my mom’s). And her flexibility before, during, and after our wedding day has been so helpful. We recommend Ocken Photography highly for price and quality.

I’m not sure we could have had a better photographer. Jennifer was so nice and seemed to just blend in. When we received our proofs it then seemed she was everywhere at once. We had so many great photos it was truly hard to narrow it down. Some of them looked straight out of a wedding magazine.

We would definitely recommend Ocken Photography. They were so amazing and so wonderful to work with. They really listened to what we wanted and we are so happy with our pictures. We have received so many compliments on our photos. They had a great turn-around time on our proofs — we had them back within a week or two of our wedding. Ocken Photography has been a pleasure to work with and we plan on using them again when we have kids!

If you’re lucky, in 10 years (or 50) you’ll have a husband and photographs to remember your wedding. Don’t risk using an amateur. Bob Ocken is the best wedding photographer in the business.

Chris captured the essence of our wedding day in a way that only he could. Stolen moments between lifelong friends, the bending branch of an ancient tree over an oblivious couple, and the momentary pause of a bride’s father — fleeting images, too easily glimpsed and lost — in his pictures become a lyrical narrative to be retold and remembered.
